Kirtan is a form of devotional 'call and response' singing whose roots go back to India over 500 years ago. The songs consist of Sanskrit mantras and chants, set to Western style music and rhythms.
Kirtan induces a sweet sound vibration that permeates through all the layers of your being - it has the power to open the heart and create a profound state of meditation and bliss.
Kirtan's popularity in the West has grown along with the explosion of Yoga centers. Naples has a strong and vibrant Kirtan community which meets every two weeks, and enjoys a wide variety of music ranging from traditional Sanskrit chants as well as songs from other traditions and cultures.
